In the current business environment, employers are confronted with the need to restructure their workforces in order to reduce labour costs. Careful planning and an understanding of the complex web of legal requirements is required in order to avoid triggering unnecessary costs and liabilities that, if not avoided, will eat up the cost savings.

Today’s employer and employees have high expectations of their advisors. In-house human
resources professionals, union representatives and outside experts must deliver advice that is timely, accurate and practical. It is important to understand the different rules of engagement for managing restructuring and discharges in unionized workplaces, the Public Service and private sector.

Answers won’t come from sitting in your office and waiting for them to arrive via emails or blog posts (much less a tweet). Clues to the right answers for your company will be found through listening to people with new ideas, and asking them the tough questions. Strategies and insight will also come
from meeting your colleagues and competitors at focused conferences, and debating ideas, facts and figures and understanding how evolving legal decisions may affect your current practices.
